That is the fourth installment of my month-to-month earnings studies from my present lengthy distance bicycle tour in Europe.
Months 1, 2 and three will be discovered under:
I started the month in Vienna, the place I spent the primary 5 days earlier than leaving my rented condo within the Prater district and touring by practice to Salzburg. I spent two nights in Salzburg, renting a resort room whereas I used to be there.
After leaving Salzburg, I traveled by practice as soon as once more to town of Innsbruck, the place I “sofa surfed” for an evening earlier than leaping on yet one more practice and going to Ljubljana, Slovenia.
In Ljubljana I stayed with Bicycle Touring Professional readers Vesna and Jure – and their roomates Boris and Urska. For 2 nights, Vesna and Jure hosted me of their fourth-floor condo and drove me round of their automotive to a few of Slovenia’s most well-known landmarks, a little bit of Italy, and the Slovenia shoreline.
From Ljubljana I boarded yet one more practice to Zagreb, Croatia, the place I spent the day after which jumped on an evening practice to Cut up.
After spending a day exploring Cut up, I bribed my means onto a ferry boat, which took me to the close by island or Korcula. From there, I instantly caught one other journey on a considerably smaller ferry that took me to the small city of Orebic.
I arrived in Orebic on the fifteenth of April and I’ve been right here ever since. I’ve rented a small one-room condo on the third story of a household’s residence, about 300 meters from the ocean. As I write this I’m sitting on my personal balcony, with a view of the Adriatic sea and an unimaginable 20+ practically islands. Completely wonderful!
I’ve spend the final two weeks working by way of my laptop computer, exploring the close by cities and villages on my bicycle, and taking to the mountains on foot.
So now that what I’ve been as much as, right here’s a breakdown of my bills for the month:
Vienna Condominium – $0 (I included the 5 days from this month in final month’s prices)

However severely. My bills every month conserving getting smaller and smaller… and this month was actually spectacular. However as summer season rapidly approaches and the vacationer season bears its ugly head, I anticipate the costs on the remainder of my journey to rapidly escalate.
Test again subsequent month to see how a lot I find yourself spending whereas persevering with my travels in Croatia and Montenegro.
